Right now I have Something Like Silas' "Divine Intervention"spinning on my ipod. Also, I have been spinning cd's by James Joyce, Delirious and Jars of Clay. Strangely enough, u2 are probably partially responsible for my interest in faith based music. Back in 98, a u2 fan suggested that I check out Delirious' Mezzamorphisis....

Mezzamorphisis is very similar to U2's Pop album.

Delirious? are in a situation similar to U2 when they were in the Shalom community church, they want to break away from the "Christian music ghetto" but they risk offending their fans and facing a mainstream audience that views them as strictly "CHRISTIAN". They've always been compared to U2 throughout their career.

As for me, Jars of Clay, TM, switchfoot are the ones I listen to mostly.

it's sad that a band like u2 can't weave faith into their songs, like they would any other belief/idea, without being labeled by some people as a "christian" band. i think bono would puke if u2 was labeled like that...

its mainly to do with some Christian groups/movements in America, all-consuming is their desire to engage society with Christianity that they used U2 for their own purposes and in some cases misrepresenting U2. I would feel used if I was U2.

Imagine U2 being a poster boy for right-wing Christianity?

I'm a big fan of Delirious, although I was disappointed with their most recent offering. To be honest though, i've never seen the similarity between Martin Smith's voice and Bono's voice.
I think Cathy Burton has the most amazing voice too.

To be honest I don't really like Christian music even though I'm a Christian. I like U2's spirituality because while it is evident...it's not in your face. Know what I mean?

Yeah, I don't listen to a whole lot of Christian music either. I could probably get into some, maybe I just haven't found my band - not necessarily to replace U2 or anything. You know what, I actually don't listen to that many secular bands either. U2 does it for me for the most part, they've got songs about faith, struggle, and reality. I can relate to pretty much all of their songs in a way.

I've only started to get back into some Christian music...I forgot to mention sixpence none the richer, for a guy like me to like them is a big thing. Keep it secret please....no wait this is the internet

Right now, I'm switching to hip hop...those beats are so irresistibly delicious.

The only Christian artist I regularly listen to is Steve Taylor, and he hasn't released an album in ten years...

Steve Taylor is awesome, and it is high time he released a new one!

I also like David Meece, Daniel Amos, The Alarm, Tribe Of Judah, Post-94 Alice Cooper, Maire (Moya) Brennan (Enya's sister), The Call

Everyone here who likes U2's 90s stuff and even their last two albums must check out this new band called Mute Math. I'm serious. They sound nothing like Christian music and they could easily cross over into the mainstream and do very well. Check out www.mutemath.com Taylor Sorensen also is very good and highly recommended.

Salvador!!!

Awesome musicians. All of them. They're latin influenced mixed with rock. I never thought I'd find an actually talented christian with their own style but lo and behold! ...Salvador.

Agreed. It's really nice to listen to their songs that do deal with religion, 'cause I can relate so well to them, as can anybody, regardless of what faith, they are, and non-religious people can still relate, too. I like that .

So yeah, there's not really a big thing of Christian artists in my CD collection...however, that being said, I did like this song that came out earlier this year by a girl named Mindy Smith-the song was "Come To Jesus", and yeah, it wasn't a bad song. And I've only heard one Jars of Clay song-that one that's their best known one, think it's called "Flood" or something like that-that's not a bad song, either.
